The more we play this game, the more I realize this..and I am living in this nation as a "ethnic minority (if such thing exists..but that's another discussion as a whole)."

I'm focusing on now of course. I'm not talking about the past when people of my race were sent into concentration camps in this nation.

 

That thing is: it's so easy to play the card of victimization. Your success, your wealth, your state of life where you are...just play the race card. Excuse your self. It's not your own fault that you can't rise above the ashes. It's the system. The system is "designed" to keep you poor. The system is "designed" for you to commit a crime. A easy way out in my personal opinion.

Just that, I see stories after stories about immigrants who can't even speak English coming here..becoming homeowners and raising their sons and daughters to become Doctors and Engineers. 🙂

 

Still the "shining house."

Just recently a black woman of financial means and celebrity suffered a fully preventable medical complication. Why? Because she was black and her complaints were minimized.

Then those very health care providers that took care of her, are guilty (if your say is real).

Nobody "dismisses" complaints by a patient.

Apparently you didn't read the NIH link. (If your say is real)

Isn't this simply an example of the same tactics used by other right-wing posters?

I see no difference between the tactics they use, and this poster.

It is all the same, and part of a familiar pattern.

I find that conservative posters (except for this new one) provide reasoned responses to the various topics here. Do I always agree with them? No, but I do try understand their point of view.

And at times, I do agree with some of their opinions.

I don't see the difference.

The arguments are the same, and the examples are the same; Candace Owens and Ben Shapiro.

Nor do I view these folks as conservatives.

People who support Trump and his policies, are right-wingers, not conservatives.

True conservatives abandoned Trump a long time ago.

Those people include George Will, Jennifer Rubin, David Frum, and Ana Navarro.

True conservatives, and not a single one supports Trump.

I don't expect you to agree with me, and that is fine.

But I call them, like I see them, to borrow a line from Tweety!

Are you a nurse?

If so, you should be acquainted with racial health disparities.

Ask yourself why those disparities exist.

Then, look up the research on the topic.

If you are a nurse, it is part of your job to be knowledge about the barriers to quality healthcare.

I think I have  a reason for the silliness of KonichiwaRN's antics when he replies.

He is a new immigrant to the US and also a new citizen. English would not be his first language so there are problems with translation. He seems to be inordinately proud of being an American so feels that America (his America) is perfect. He will quote some of the writings associated with America - the constitution, the declaration of independence etc. but does not understand the nuances of the words. He sees the conservative side of American politics as the way to be and the values he espouses to. "Socialism" of any kind is anathema to him. If he is a nurse he is very proud of that and will have no disagreement with the American healthcare system. 

What made me think this is the reply to me on page 15 where he said. "Bye bye. 🙂Meanwhile, we'll be voting". He seems to be under some impression that other countries do not vote. 

Have a think about it folks and if you agree or disagree. Either way I am being charitable here.

That's a nice way to look at it.  It is unfortunate, IMV that such a recent immigrant has embraced and eagerly employs the US v Them political partisan stance. That seems a bit more trollish than you suggest.

Allow me to share with you a core of American value which I knew..even before I became an "American."

 

We (Americans) don't care how the world thinks of us. We refers to, people whose voice matters. In this case, American voters.

That would include the likes of me.

Unless you're a expat Grumpy, and can mail in your votes. 🙂

Well, the thing is..

everyone around me in a personal level (immigrants, business owners, investors, and yes: health care professionals included) are..

 

yup. GOP voters. 🙂 Why? Because we don't want this new country of ours, to be rolling in the way the system works "back in our ancestral homes."

Sure

I live in the very GOP state of Alaska. Guess what, not everyone who lives and works here votes GOP! That includes immigrants (lots of Asian immigrants too). I will say with confidence that not everyone around you supports the GOP, no matter in which community you live. Broad generalizations are not impressive or effective arguments.

Broad generalization? We "came" from that system where the government holds the most power, and people get sentenced for even practicing the ideology of speech.

Strangely, "we" see the same rhetoric from the side of the Democrats (and also certain GOP members). Larger government, larger taxes, due to -insert excuse here-

 

The straw that broke the camel's back per say, is when I saw the massive protests against the fundamental aspect of what America is: that is, the practice of free speech..

Ever see "conservatives" burning buildings and setting campuses on fire here in this nation because a speaker decided to show up invited at their place?

Give me a link. Surely, you can provide some links right?

I can give you countless examples of ANTIFA acting like the goons of Mussolini.
